Hot Hummus

Happy HIMYM Day!!! :) I’m watching right now – it’s a rerun, but still hilarious.

Work was nutso today! Emails, emails, emails…rescheduling things…processing…nonstop!

I made myself a little snack around 4:15 today. I’m usually digging through the cabinets around 3:30, but my lunch held me over really well.


An apple mess, a la Jess  :)


I diced one tiny gala apple and popped it in the microwave for 1:30 with some cinnamon. Once that was softened, I topped it with a tablespoon of peanut butter, an little drizzle of pumpkin butter, and some graham cracker crumbs.

Yum! This was also a great choice because I was freezing and couldn’t even think about having yogurt today.

Once Nick got home, we headed over to the chiropractor. Is it sad that I’m upset when I don’t really need adjustments? ;) I just miss that feeling of having everything put back in place – does that make any sense? Probably not. Either way, it was a good visit!

I was excited for dinner tonight!


I dreamed this up the other night and have been waiting to have it ever since.


When I went to TJ’s this weekend at my parents’ house, I bought a package of their whole wheat Naan bread. I mainly bought it to go along with some of their Indian meals I also bought, but I had the best idea the other night.


Hot Hummus Flatbreads


It was even better than I thought it would be!

For the flatbreads, I just put the Naan on a foil-lined baking sheet and Nick and I each made our own with whatever toppings we wanted.

On mine, I layered:

  • spinach
  • TJ’s Garlic Hummus
  • black olives
  • sprinkle of feta
  • diced red onion
  • diced sundried tomatoes
  • crushed red pepper
  • parsley

After we had the toppings on, I popped them in the oven for about 15 minutes until they were hot and the bread was a little crispy.


This TJ’s hummus is super garlicky – that’s all I can taste! But it’s so good.

We also had some salads with more olives, feta, onion, and tomato.


All that’s left for me to do is pack my lunch for tomorrow, fold one more load of laundry, and maybe paint my nails? I meant to paint them while I was at my parents’ this weekend, but that never happened in between all the eating + shopping  ;)
